  • Wonderful place to learn about our history. I recommend taking an informational tour.

Salem is a great New England sea town. I recommend going in September.
  • Totally worth the trip to Salem. It was absolutely awesome. Shop owners were very knowledgeable about what they sold. Everyone was pleasant. Such a unique place to visit.
